Who am I?

Daffa KONATE, Malian and Senegalese by origin, I was born and raised in Paris. Mother of two children, I currently live in Istanbul where my husband and I decided to settle following a professional opportunity from him.

 

I immediately decided to value this new “expatriate” status.  

Working in connection with Africa was obvious, but I wanted to get the continent out of its clichés and stereotypes.

It was a visit to the village of art in Dakar in December 2015 that was decisive. The village of the arts is a place bringing together artists where all the artistic disciplines of the visual arts are represented there. There is a feeling of serenity and tranquility, a place conducive to creativity!

After discussions with artists, the click!  I wanted to share the work of these talented people with as many people as possible, to show a culturally rich, modern, innovative and incredibly creative Africa!

 

Today,  I enjoy showing contemporary creations  from Africa, I am delighted with the interest, exchanges and enthusiasm  that these discoveries arouse through the cultural and artistic events that I organize.
